Christina Haack isn't letting negative comments take away from the happiness she feels with her new boyfriend, Joshua Hall.
The Christina on the Coast star, 38, recently posted a sweet selfie to Instagram of herself with the Austin-based realtor — whom PEOPLE confirmed she was dating in early July — and let followers know that she hadn't turned off the comments on the post, as she typically does when sharing photos of him, but she would if she had to.
"Summer nights with my number [one emoji]," she began the post, adding a heart. "I normally turn off comments with Josh and will continue to do so if people are rude. I don't want to waste any mins of my life blocking negative people."
She continued: "People are way too concerned about other people's lives. They spend so much time judging others to avoid working on their own s---. Judgment is like a mirror - what we dislike in others is what we dislike in [ourselves]."
She went on to say that she believes those who post negative comments about her are actually the most unhappy.
"What I've seen in my life so far is when people spew hatred at me or anyone else for that matter those people are always the ones who have the most self-hatred and the ones who truly need healing and self-love," she wrote. "Life is short. Do what you love with the ones you love. For me, that's Josh, my kids and a few close friends and co-workers."
She concluded the post with a peace sign emoji.

Haack, who hasn't been shy about clapping back at online critics in the past, has been sharing more and more of her life with Hall on social media lately, including their recent trip to Disneyland and a beach day with her three children: daughter Taylor Reese, 10, and son Brayden James, 5, whom she shares with first husband Tarek El Moussa, and son Hudson London, 22 months, whom she shares with her second husband, Ant Anstead.

"They recently started dating each other and it was an immediate, real connection," a source said at the time. "They've enjoyed getting to know each other one-on-one without outside noise."
The Flip or Flop star later revealed that she and Hall had been dating for months, writing in an Instagram post, "When we met this past spring, the synchronicities hit us so hard and fast they were impossible to ignore."

"I felt immediately crazy protective over him and wanted to keep him for myself and get to know each other before the tornado (media attention) hit," she continued. "We've had a few solid months of just us getting to know each other and I've loved every second of it."

In late July, Haack praised Hall in a sweet tribute on her Instagram, calling him her "Ride or Die."
"Some people are lucky enough to get forever the first time but no one should be shamed for things not working out and no one knows what goes on behind closed doors," she captioned a photo of the pair sitting in a car.
Haack went on to tell followers to "remember that before making judgments and assumptions," adding that "this woman/mama is still lucky enough to have this man choose me."
